Networks Centre’s Managing Director, Duncan Lindsay, is running the London Marathon on Sunday 26th April 2015
Running for the charity MS-UK, formerly MSRC, Duncan has already raised an incredible £3000 from his Virgin Money fundraising page.
MS-UK is dedicated to supporting anyone affected by Multiple Sclerosis and this is a cause very close to Duncan’s heart as he explains, “My mother suffered with the disease, and after a long battle, she passed away in 1998. There is no cure and it truly is a terrible disease, but what we can do is to help sufferers to live a fuller, more comfortable and better life.”
MS-UK offer support and information to sufferers and their families, via Advisors, their website, their magazine and much more. It is a very worthy cause, to support those with a disease that currently has no cure.
With just over a week to go, we interviewed Duncan on how his training is going:
How are you feeling about the race on Sunday April 26th?
I’m nervous in case I can’t finish it. People keep mentioning ‘the wall’.
What made you sign up for the challenge?
I needed to get fit. So last year I did a tough mudder, then a half marathon and the obvious next stage was a marathon. I’m running with 2 others, my brother and a friend and between us we will raise over £10,000.
What has been the hardest part of training for you?
Finding the time. Running 5 times a week is very time consuming!
What are you looking forward to after the race?
Any message for those who have sponsored you?
